Hastings On Nonviolence blog had a wonderful article posted on 02/19/10 entitled "Outvasion" which describes the idea of the U.S. closing its military bases around the world. Here are a couple of quotes from the article:
The US has a military presence in 153 of the 194 nation-states on Earth, some 1,000 (approximately) bases large and small. This is an astonishing and abiding source of anger against the US.
Hastings recommend that we close most of these bases and with the money we would save increase the Peace Corps to help other nations. It is a great idea!
